This stunning fresh water pearl necklace was designed and made with the customer involved at every stage. This included choosing the beautiful row of pearls, the perfect pearl drop and designing the 9ct yellow gold caps, hooks and bow. This particular row was chosen for their lustre and lovely variegated natural pinks.
The aim of the design was to produce a flexible and interchangeable piece. The drop pearl pendant can be removed and swapped with other custom-made pendants and the row of graduated pearls can also be worn alone. The bow & drop could be worn on a chain or another string of pearls, perhaps of a different length or colour.
This versatility allows the happy owner to wear the necklace with numerous outfits and for every occasion. However you choose to wear it, it is a beautifully unique necklace!
Due to a shortage of coins in the 17th & 18th Century, towns began to issue tokens instead. These were vital to keep local trade going.
Many Kentish towns had their own token, each depicting strong local themes. The Tenterden token portrayed the hop trade and carried the image of a brewer’s horse and dray with the legend “To cheer our hearts”. It was produced in 1796 and was “Payable at I & T Cloakes Brew House” in Tenterden.
We have incorporated some of these beautiful historic tokens into one-off jewellery pieces. You can now own a piece of Tenterden history in the form of a wonderful and unique necklace!
We recently had the pleasure of making this 9ct yellow gold pendant for a customer of ours who used to live and work in Ghana. This pendant is close to her heart and is a reminder of the time she spent in Ghana. This symbol in particular is an Adinkra symbol that means "Love never loses its way home". Adinkra symbols express various concepts that relate to the history, beliefs and philosophy of the Ashanti people.
